This has happened to me a few times through the years, and here's how to fix it if you're running WinXP (I believe there's a similar way to fix it in Vista and Win7)...:

- Right click on your desktop and select Properties
- Click on the Appearance tab and then on the Effects button
- Make sure the box in front of "Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts" is checked and select Standard below it
- Click OK, and OK again, and you're done

- Then choose "Standard" from the drop down box.

The Win7 fix also applies to Win8/Win8.1.

It's a terrible fix, though, because it screws up the rest of your text. I just look at the DF2 lobby in Chrome first, choose a server, then try to find it in the scrambled mess in DF2's browser, lol.

lol, I stay away from chrome as if it were the plague....


it isn't a total fix for win7, but it was good enough for me to see the servers clearly.
